Destination guide

Redmond offers plenty for all the family

Located in the heart of central Oregon, east of the majestic Cascade mountains, Redmond is a beguiling base from which to explore this breathtaking region. Its vibrant downtown area is awash with dazzling Art Deco buildings, hip brew pubs, cutting-edge galleries, and irresistible eateries. There's a whole host of centrally located Redmond vacation rentals to pick from, so you can stay right in the heart of the action. And should you feel like getting away from it all, the shimmering lakes and lush glades of the vast Willamette National Forest are waiting to be explored.

Things to do

Redmond's vibrant homegrown arts scene

You'll find plenty of quirky attractions within easy reach of your Redmond vacation rental. The Art of Alfred A. Dolezal Gallery showcases an array of vibrant, and sometimes surreal, oil paintings by the Austrian-born artist. Dolezal also teaches regular drawing and painting classes, should you feel like brushing up your own skills. Just 15 minutes or so by car from downtown Redmond, the Petersen Rock Garden offers another one-of-a-kind cultural experience. Here, you'll find all manner of miniature buildings and monuments, including a replica of the Statue of Liberty, all hand-crafted by late local resident Rasmus Petersen, who worked diligently on the garden up until his death in 1952.

Activities

Adrenalin-pumping adventures in Redmond

Redmond is a haven for lovers of the great outdoors. The rugged Smith Rock State Park, with its abundance of sheer cliffs, is a hotspot for rock climbers of all ages and abilities. If you're in the mood for a somewhat more leisurely pursuit, the Juniper Golf Course is a verdant championship course with panoramic views of the nearby mountains. A number of said mountains serve as major winter sports resorts. Mt. Bachelor bursts to life once the first snow falls, with skiers and snowboarders traveling from far and wide to enjoy its powder-covered runs.

Weather

Hot summer days and crisply cool nights

Redmond's high desert climate ensures long, dry, hot summer days, with clear blue skies and plenty of sunshine. Temperatures drop considerably at night time, though, so be sure to pack a sweater or jacket, even if you're visiting in July or August. The shoulder months of May and September also offer dependably warm daytime weather, and fewer out-of-towners means that you may land a better deal on your dream Redmond vacation rental. Winter sees temperatures become refreshingly crisp, while the nearby mountains receive a generous coating of snow.

Natural features

Fragrant forests and heavenly hiking trails

The Redmond region offers a dramatic, geographically diverse landscape that will enthrall nature lovers. The town's Dry Canyon Trail is a perennially popular spot for a leisurely stroll. Here, you can wander through fragrant juniper groves, and marvel at the lava cliff walls that once hemmed in a mighty river. A short drive away lies the entrance to the Deschutes River Trail. The blissfully tranquil river banks are lined with majestic ponderosa pines, and if you keep an eye out you may spot majestic osprey and eagles soaring overhead.
